On end of slide Action
User defined text variable
A Fame label is a property of a frame in a Flash movie. Checking the Frame Label box will assign the name entered in the associated text box as the Frame label. The default name is the slide name without its extent ion. The label can be read and acted upon by Java Script and many third party Flash tools to provide direct access and navigation to entry points in your Flash movie.
Every slide has a default Frame Label name assigned to it. The default will be the file name (no path or extension).
Selecting the Frame Label check box will include the Frame Label in the Flash movie. The Frame Label may be given any name you choose by entering it in the text box to the right of the Frame label check box.
The HTML anchor represents an entry point into the SWf file that can be targeted by a URL. Selecting the HTML anchor box will create an HTML anchor with the same name as the Frame label.
For example www.magematics.com/show.htm#entry slide(there is no show here)
Would call the HTML page show and jump to the slide named entry slide on the Web tab of the target slide.
The # designates and anchor.
NOTE: This is a very powerful feature. It allows slide shows to call slide shows and specify the entry slide. This can be tied to parameters and templates to create very sophisticated hypermedia.
